Laser Safety Calculations Workshop


Course Location and Date  –

Park Place Building
666 Burrard Street
Suite 500
Vancouver, BC V6C 3P6

October 27, 2017  9am to 12 pm

Content includes examples of formulae and sample calculations using the Tables from ANSI Z136.1 (2014) for the following:

  • Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE) for eye and skin
  • Nominal Ocular Hazard Distance (NOHD)
  • Nominal Hazard Zone (NHZ)
  • Optical Densities (OD)
  • Laser classification
  • Understanding of some computer programs

Participants will require some knowledge of basic mathematical functions. The workshop will allow participants to be able to use the appropriate formulates and ANSI Z136.1 (2014) Tables to calculate the correct MPEs and then calculate the NOHD and OD for lasers. The optional half day calculation workshop is an excellent addition to the KRMC 2 day LSO course.
